Cape Breton Mysteries Garden Girl

Book Launch

I am delighted to announce the upcoming launch of my latest novel


Unlike my previous three novels, which were all Historical Fiction, this is the first in a series of mysteries, set in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia Canada. It features Detective Gordie MacLean and his partner Detective Roxanne Albright. Here is the back of the book description:

Gordie MacLean, a 53-year-old bachelor detective is content minding his own patch of Cape Breton Island with its rugged coastal landscape and low crime rate. When the remains of a missing person are discovered though, he’s in the right place at the right time to be lead on the case. MacLean battles his sergeant’s scorn and his own demons to prove that he can hunt down the killer; a killer who will stop at nothing to protect their long-buried secrets.

For fans of P.D. James, this book brings a classic police procedural to life, with a Canadian flavour.

With that, I’m excited to hereby reveal the cover!

The launch date for GARDEN GIRL is June 12, but it is available for pre order right now! For those who are ready to order their ebook I am running a Pre Order incentive. Email me a copy of your purchase receipt and you will be entered into the draw for one of these great prizes:

There is lots of tea drinking in the book, so what better than to have a lovely Cape Breton teaspoon with which to stir your OWN cup of tea whilst reading the book? OR, if enjoying a bit of wine and charcuterie while reading is more to your taste, you’ll love winning this Cape Breton olive fork accompanied by a pack of Cape Breton cocktail serviettes (napkins).

Although only ebooks are currently available for pre order, I can’t leave all of you who love the tactile experience of holding a real print book, out of this great give-away, so anyone who orders a print book in the first week after the launch date (so – between June 12 and 23:59 June 19) and emails me the receipt of purchase, will also be included in the draw. In ADDITION –there are five Cape Breton bookmarks going as part of the give-away AND every print book purchaser (who buys a book during the week of June 12, 2021 and June 19, 2021) will be sent a signed bookplate for your book.

Your pre order link is here:

Send your proof of purchase to me at:

This give-away is open to international purchasers.

  1. Yes my favourite Author has a new read! Can’t wait to get my hands on and my eyes into this new book Renny. Hard copy with autograph is the only way to go. All of your novels have been spellbinding, enjoyable to read and leave me wanting more.

  2. Oh Renny, I’m thrilled about your new book!! Can’t wait to get a copy. My mom will be happy to get a copy as well! I just took her up to the cottage yesterday and she needs a good book. Perfect timing!
